    Pros

    One of the best work environments I've ever been in. If you talk to people and are friendly then you will be just fine!

    Cons

    The store does get full and your managers will forget your brakes unless you remind them. Sometimes all the Apple confidentiality gets a bit annoying when speaking with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Great job guys! Apple was the best place I've every worked and if I ever have an opportunity I'll be back

    Pros

    * Readily available knowledge * Enthusiastic work environment * Very Selective Hiring Process * You for the most part can actually believe you are selling something you believe in * 25% off is a nice discount * Supervisors are looking to you to grow yourself

    Cons

    * The salary for the income you generate is negligible * Very limited openings to advance up to * If you let managers talk to you like a child they will take advantage of it

    Advice to Management

    Deliver the goods to your people in a higher discount so that they can actually afford the products they sell on the salary they are paid.

    Pros

    You know you are becoming part of something great, pride in showing off the products you work on to your friends and family. Ability to change outcomes. Working with some of the smartest people on the planet.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Average benefits package for a company that is doing so well. High stress environment. Low emphasis on family - no company event with family!

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that work life balance is important. Benefits compared to other companies of comparable size are average. Encourage cross geography movement of employees to spread the culture

    Pros

    The best technology in the industry. Really nice stores and culture. Once you are in it is a really stable job.

    Cons

    The hours are only delivered two weeks in advanced so if you have a strict schedule it can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency for part timers. Their employees are never in the loop. That would really help job satisfaction for employees.

    Pros

    Great company culture, excellent reputation. Lot of opportunities to work with intelligent people and interesting customers. Excellent training for certain positions.

    Cons

    Unclear career path for retail employees. Office politics and gossip are prevalent in most retail environments. Management often unfamiliar with culture/products.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who understand the culture and products already, and retain the people that embody those ideals. Offer continuous education and allow employees to take advantage of the program.

    Pros

    Having worked other retail, I can say I've never found the level of respect and training as I have at Apple. Sharp leadership and unparalleled products.

    Cons

    Very high standards and high volume of customers. If you lack people skills, don't even bother applying

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    exposure to leading edge technology, intelligent co-workers, generous employee stock purchase plan, on-site fitness center, excellent food-pellets at Cafe mac

    Cons

    no internal job alternative process, management makes no effort to find ongoing projects for employees when re-structuring occurs - employees are on-their-own

    Advice to Management

    promote teamwork rather than pit employees against one another for opportunities - share project information across teams and respect the integrity and honesty of the staff

    Pros

    Smart people, good products, competence and focus in abundance. Certain pride you feel working there is warranted. Get to work on/with OS X all day every day.

    Cons

    You may find you're so flattered to be asked to join Apple, the "it" company of the moment, that you'll ignore the red flags. Does everyone talk about relentless work hours? Do they seem enthused? Happy? The power of the Idea of Apple is so strong that even rational engineers get lost in the meta. "Are you worthy to work at Apple?" is the unspoken question that permeates the atmosphere, inciting, especially in the newer hires, a manic desire to prove themselves. Its power is amplified by the state of the economy. Employees voluntarily give away large swaths of their time and life energy, essentially subsidizing a corporation that is quarter-to-quarter hoarding billions in cash. I can only speak for my small slice of the Apple pie, but I found it a tense, unfriendly place, with few glimpses of unguarded humanity.

    Advice to Management
